    Is the United States a force for democracy? William Blum serves up a forensic overview of U.S. foreign policy spanning sixty years.

Often, it seems, the unstated, implied premise behind some of these questions is that radicalism once was, but is no more, a questioning underpinned by senses of defeat, confusion, with a hint of nostalgia thrown in.

    For the few of us who reported East Timor long before it was finally declared news, the "disclosures" last weekend that Washington had trained Indonesia's death squads are bizarre.

All it needed was reporting.
